* SophomoreSlump: Few people would call it a bad game, but where the original was the TropeMaker for the platformer genre and the next game is often ranked among the greatest games in history, ''2'' is mostly just considered to be a good game. It also sold fewer copies than the first and third game.[[note]]Being a ''Mario'' game, though, it's far from a categorical flop when it's still the ''third'' best-selling title on the NES; it and ''Zelda II'' were both subject to DemandOverload when they debuted.[[/note]]

* VindicatedByHistory: [[http://www.ign.com/articles/2012/06/15/this-is-shigeru-miyamotos-favorite-mario-game In 2012]], Creator/ShigeruMiyamoto shocked many by dubbing this as his favorite Mario game. General Audience reaction has been kinder towards the game in the following years, partly because it is a game that breaks the formula in many ways and introduced numerous defining gameplay mechanics.

* UnwinnableByInsanity: In World 2-2 where you must dig through sand, it's possible to force yourself into a dead end by digging up every sand block until they're out of your jumping range. Since the game has no timer, you're stuck there. The only way out without resetting the game is to use the suicide code (Up+A+B on the second controller). This provides the trope image.

The GBA version also adds a vase to the bottom, and entering and exiting it will respawn the sand, making it impossible to trap yourself in the first place.

* ContestedSequel: Among fans, Mario 2 is one of two things: A very different but fun Mario game that deserves it's status in the series as a classic, or a lazy romhack of an unrelated Japanese game that while good, [[FanonDiscontinuity doesn't belong in the franchise]].

* BrokenBase:
** The third world's dungeon is seen by some as a huge difficulty spike due to the shy guy pots and lots of spark platforms and increased length, while others see it as the easiest dungeon in the game due to the abundance of POW blocks, the near absence of instant death traps, the ease of escaping the Phanto, the fact you get all your hearts early, and the lack of ZergRush enemies in the dungeon.

* DemonicSpiders: Bob-Ombs, when uprooted, often have an extremely short fuse, damaging you if you don't throw them in time.
